Accounting myths debunked
To celebrate International Accounting Day on 10 November, we are busting some
persistent – and completely outdated – accounting myths.
Accountants have faced many stereotypes
over the years, with popular culture and
“bean counter” stereotypes playing a part.
Being good with numbers is still a
prerequisite, but it is only the beginning
of an accountant’s skill set. These days,
accountants are visual storytellers, business
strategists and people leaders.
We have asked these stereotypedefying CPA Australia members to debunk
the biggest accounting myth they have
encountered on their career path.
